Ascending UK talent Redfield today releases his debut Pictures EP via Higher Ground, bringing his signature fusion of soulful vocal samples and stripped-back deep house grooves to Diplo’s burgeoning imprint with three impressive new tracks.
A classically trained musician, Redfield aka Neil Barrett has released on some of dance music’s biggest labels including FFRR, Spinnin’, Armada and Big Beat, spanning myriad styles. Since taking the scene by storm as Redfield this past summer with “Don’t Worry” in collaboration with Swedish House Mafia’s Axwell — which has already amassed over 4 million streams and counting on Spotify, plus massive BBC Radio 1 support from the likes of Annie Mac, Danny Howard, Nick Grimshaw, Maya Jama, MistaJam, Pete Tong and, of course, Diplo — Redfield has since released stellar remixes for DJ Lag, Leon Lour, RAYE, Jess Glynne, and was most recently tapped for an official remix of Major Lazer’s latest international hit single “Que Calor” featuring J Balvin and El Alfa.

Higher Ground is Diplo’s new house imprint. Named after his recent deep house-inspired Higher Ground EP, the label is a platform to showcase both established and up-and-coming talent in house music, and a new home for Diplo’s own house tracks and collaborations. Aiming to transcend a singular sound or subgenre, Higher Ground will release everything from tech-house to deep/melodic house, lo-fi to Afro-infused house, and everything in between.
“House is where it all came from. Everything we know and love as dance music today started with the masters in Chicago and Detroit almost forty years ago,” Diplo says. “The genre has always been incredibly important to me, and Higher Ground is our homage to the legends and opportunity to champion new sounds and artists from around the world pushing the genre forward.”
